Citroen UK has opened its order books for e-Berlingo Van – the new, all-electric version of the multi-award winning Berlingo Van. Citroen e-Berlingo Van is available in Panel Van form, with two body lengths, and as a Crew Van. Basic MRR prices for Citroen e-Berlingo Van start at just £24,910 (after Government PIVG of £3,000, excluding VAT).
The zero-emissions Citroen e-Berlingo Van features a 50kWh battery connected to a 100kW (136hp) electric motor with up to 260Nm of torque. From a single charge, e-Berlingo Van has a range of up to 171 miles under WLTP testing. Ideal for both fleet and SME business users, e-Berlingo Van also supports up to 100kW rapid charging – with a 0-80% charge taking just 30 minutes.
All new e-Berlingo Vans come with a ‘Mode 3’ charging cable with ‘Type 2’ connectors for accelerated charging from wallboxes and dedicated public charging points. All versions also feature a 7.4kW single-phase on-board charger as standard.
The new e-Berlingo Crew Van also has a range of up to 171 miles (WLTP), and can comfortably carry cargo and up to five people when needed. Whichever configuration customers choose, Citroen e-Berlingo Van keeps running costs low with all types of use. New Citroen e-Berlingo Van is currently exempt from Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone charges.
Drivers have the choice of three operating modes when at the wheel: Normal, Eco and Power – to suit a wide variety of loads and on-road conditions. To optimise the range, e-Berlingo Van also features a regenerative braking system, with drivers able to activate a ‘B’ button via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.
All models also come with remote temperature pre-conditioning and an AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System), which generates a distinctive sound at low speeds that is audible outside the vehicle for pedestrian safety.
New Citroen e-Berlingo Van operators are also eligible for a free six-month subscription to the FREE2MOVE Connect Fleet Telematics service, which includes fleet management, eco driving and geo-location packs. The latter enables business owners to track their vehicles remotely in real time.
New e-Berlingo Van is available in sizes ‘M’ and ‘XL’, with Medium models measuring 4.4m long, and XL variants coming in at 4.75m long. All versions are 1.90m high and – thanks to a specially adapted power steering system – have an agile turning circle of just 10.8m (with the exception of the XL Crew Van, which has an increased turning circle of 11.4m).
Load volumes in Panel Van ‘M’ versions range from 3.3m3 to 3.9m3 – with the EXTENSO® seat folded, while the ‘XL’ variant offers an increased available load volume of 3.8m3 to 4.4m3. ‘M’ variants can carry loads of up to 3.09m in length and have a maximum payload of 803kg, while the longer ‘XL’ model offers a 3.44m maximum load length with the EXTENSO® seat folded down, and a maximum payload of 751kg.
New e-Berlingo Van is available with a choice of two trims levels, Enterprise Pro and Driver Pro. Enterprise Pro trim is available on both Panel Van versions (‘M’ or ‘XL’) and on the Crew Van variant. Driver Pro trim is offered exclusively on the ‘M’ Panel Van model.
Enterprise Pro trim comes as standard with 16-inch steel wheels ,with ‘Twirl’ wheel covers, height-adjustable halogen headlights with automatic illumination, integrated daytime running lights and electrically folding door mirrors.
Inside, Enterprise Pro models feature a carpeted floor in the cabin, overhead storage, front door pockets with 1.5-litre bottle holders and a large top box storage compartment. Enterprise Pro variants also feature Citroen’s EXTENSO® modular folding passenger bench seat, which can increase load space and comes with a pivoting writing table. Additional storage is located under the central seat, while a load-through bulkhead improves practicality still further.
Both Panel Van and Crew Van Enterprise Pro models also offer, as standard, a capacitive eight-inch touchscreen with Citroen Connect DAB radio, Bluetooth® and associated USB sockets. To ensure the safety of drivers, passengers and other road users, Enterprise Pro models offer cruise control with programmable speed limiter.
Finally, for safety, ease and convenience, Enterprise Pro models also come with rear parking sensors, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a full-size steel spare wheel.
Top-of-the-range Drive Pro models boast 16-inch ‘Starlit’ black alloy wheels and a ‘Look Pack’ featuring a body-coloured rear bumper, side rubbing strips and exterior door handles.
Inside, Driver Pro models boast a 10-inch digital driver’s display, along with Citroen Connect Navigation including a three-year subscription to live traffic alerts. The Citroen Connect Box Emergency & Assistance system puts the driver in touch with a trained advisor in the event of an accident or incident when in use.
Driver Pro variants also add Surround Rear Vision, front and rear parking sensors, as well as side and rear cameras that help drivers manoeuvre when reversing.
The 50kWh battery pack in e-Berlingo Van is covered by an eight year/100,000 mile warranty, for up to 70% of the original battery capacity – for added peace-of-mind.
